My goal here, however, is not directly to challenge the framework of lawyer regulation. Instead, I write to suggest an adjustment to the existing regulatory regime, setting aside, at least for the moment, any challenge to the merits of the system itself. My proposal is quite modest: In order to inform the choices implicit in rulemaking, regulation ought to be based upon sound empirical evidence. This is particularly important because of the complexities brought about by globalization.
